As long as we recognize Lucas is washed up and most TV sucks, we'll all get along fine.

Maybe they sold that many theater tickets, but I would bet a dollar that way more people saw the first movie on TV, in some format, before A2 happened.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

They have stated that they wanted to maintain a distance between their "street level" heroes and their movie heroes.

Let's be honest, Daredevil would have been a speck of dust to Thanos. While I would love to see Luke Cage and Iron Fist get the proper treatment, I'm very happy we'll never see Jessica Jones on the big screen.

Here's an interesting bit of speculation on #4 that is a ridiculously minor spoiler if it comes true: Ronin.

I love Robert De Niro as much as the next guy, but...

People like to see things they know and can relate to or just something "different". It's kind of like how the train nerds in my office get geeked because an engine comes through rocking an unusual paint job.

Also because the Ultimate Universe version of Hawkeye is a legit badass MFer. The bow and arrow is cute, but imagine someone who can hit every target with any weapon (guns, knives, silverware, fingernails...) and who has nothing to live for except revenge. Ronin showing up means we could be getting that Hawkeye.

Ah... so his family is part of who is killed, and so he gets all revengy?

In the Ultimate Universe, which was a completely separate timeline where they let writers re-imagine the Marvel universe, Hawkeye's family is murdered and he gets very, very revengy. It's revealed that he was actually betrayed by Black Widow and he executes her, sticking her to a wall via an arrow to the face.

That won't be a spoiler because the movie universe doesn't share much with the Ultimate universe aside from black Nick Fury and Thor's costume at the end of Infinity War. Plus, Black Widow's motivations were very Russian vs U.S. and that doesn't exist in the movies.

I fully expect Clint Barton's family is dead and he's going to be coming, but for who? Maybe he'll be stealing alien tech, ala Spider-man Homecoming, and really upgrading his effectiveness? Don't forget, Ant-Man and the Wasp is coming out soon, and that'll give us another indication of where we're headed. Also, Captain Marvel comes out in March of next year, clearly prepping audiences for her to show up in A4.

Hmmm, if I think about it too hard, it is a bit weird given how emotional Pratt's character is (witness the scene on the alien planet later where he loses control)... but it was a strong scene.

I guess technically Thanos was already controlling all of reality, around them. If Thanos can cube Drax and slinky Mantis, then surely he can have Pter pull the trigger of a bubble gun.

But I don't think he did, which is why Thanos chumped him and left with a, "I like you."
Fuuuuuuck YOU.
